I made my Mom a butterfly canvas for her birthday.
She has always had a love for butterflies for as long as I can remember.
She has never really been a fan of animals...I think they just seem to scare her a little to much. (of course you bring out a baby animal...and she melts completely. In her mind this is just a baby and it won't hurt me...so she is always happy to hold and love on infant animals)
It's really funny to watch my poodles over the years try and convince my Mom that they are nice and won't hurt her...but she just shoos them away. My older poodle will lay on the couch about 10 inches away from Mom ....and little by little scoot closer and closer to my Mom. Eventually Zoey will make it right up close to Mom's leg. But as long as she doesn't lick Mom or wiggle to much she is allowed to stay. My younger poodles don't have the patience for that...LOL!!!!
Because of this fear....she has settled her animal love on the butterfly...I think because they are quiet, soft and light...and so very pretty in color that they don't scare her at all. Once she came to see me in Arizona and I took her to a butterfly exhibit and she just smiled the entire time she was there. She sat on a rock and just watched and waited to see if someone would land on her. It made my heart happy to watch her so content in that exhibit.
I recently made 4 small butterfly canvas' for myself ....and decided for her birthday I would make the same type of butterfly for her.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to see what I'm up to.
Please have a BLESSED day
